Cornley and Morrissey
« on: March 1, 2010, 08:28 AM »
saw them both sitting courtside, and saw Cornley sitting courtside at the OSU game. Not sure if this has been posted yet, but I'm wondering why he is in town?

I hear that they were handing out buckeyes (horse chestnuts) to youngsters.  :-\

Just curious...

Anyone have a list of former players that now live in State College.

Brian Allen, Dan McKenna, Glen Sekunda, Mark DuMars, just to name a few that I know of.  
Dan Earl too.   :)

I'm guessing Nate Althouse. I see him at most of the games.

Correct, and Tyler Smith lives in the S.C. area when he is not playing hoops overseas.

Does MacDougald go to games?  I thought I saw him at the MSU game.

Not sure about him but C.J. Johnson does and I am pretty sure he also lives in S.C.

Jason hasn't been back in a while.  Don't think that was him.

Others - going back a few years.

Ron Avillion (1963-65) passed away recently but he was a long time State College resident.
Bill Young (1967-69) lives close enough to be a season ticket holder and attend most games.
Dick Barvinchak (1973) moved back a few years ago.
Randy Meister's (1973-75) kids went to State High so I assume he's here.
Tom Daley (1968-70) has lived in town for ages. 

I henceforth promise to never rarely respond to kid again.

Mel was rocking the NIT ring.

Also, Morrissey's back home in Cleveland but engaged to a girl who's in Hershey so State College is a convenient meeting place.

I forgot to mention this on the forum when I saw it on TV.  It looked like Cornley was caught on TV while talking to a lady sitting behind him.

When he was courtside, it looked like Geary Claxton was sitting next to him.  Does anyone have the game recorded?  can they identify the guy next to him?

It wasn't Claxton.  If it had been, they would have put him on the screen too.

Cornley mentioned in a tweet not too long ago that he was looking into grad school at PSU

I wonder if he's considering the MBA program.  Melle's got the personality to be a good exec. or coach  ;)

Would love to see Mel as some type of coach.  Would bring the fire and intensity and work ethic that is needed.  Maybe a grad assistant for a year or two and then on the staff when one of the current coaches moves on.

Not sure where Jeff Miller is now but he lived in Lewistown for years.
